    NEW MARKET- The Mountie Swimmers took on the Lebanon Tigers in a Conference meet on Saturday. The girls fell short losing 107-78, but the boys beat Lebanon for the first time in years 94-81.
    For the boys, Ryan Sacco and Owen Zimmerman really shined for the Mounties by winning two events a piece. Sacco dropped 3.56 seconds on his 500 freestyle time to win that along with the 200 free. Zimmerman showed his versatility by winning the 200 IM and the 100 backstroke. Even though the girls weren’t able to win, senior leader Madison Wickholm along with freshman young guns Jane Scheidler and Emma Tyler, were able to win 2 events each. Wickholm won the 200 and 500 freestlyes while Scheidler took the 50 and 100 freestyles. Tyler took over the 200 IM and the 100 breaststroke.
    With this win, the boy’s record is now 5-1 and the girls fall to 4-3.

    A little more than 12 hours after suiting up and battling Sagamore Athletic Conference rival Lebanon, Crawfordsville took to its home floor in a midday matchup with Attica. The Lady Athenians lacked the energy and gusto to hang with the Ramblers, losing 60-23 Saturday. 
    “I’m a little disappointed today. We didn’t have the energy we needed. I didn’t think we hustled getting back on defense and it cost us a lot. This should have been a closer game, I think,” said Crawfordsville head coach Tony Bean. “Now maybe that’s because of the energy we spent last night against Lebanon, having to turn around within 12 hours is a little tough, but no excuses. We have to get better and we have to get better in a hurry or this is going to continue for quite a while.”

    Only a few families in Montgomery County have contributed as much to their high school basketball teams as the family of Burrill and Marcella Denhart. I asked the Denharts for some of their memories about growing up with such an amazing family. Here are some of their thoughts.
    Thoughts from Gary Denhart Pt. 2
    A couple other great memories were always going to the Linden café, the Kopper Kettle, after a game for a cheeseburger and fries and a huge crowd being there to welcome us home. Thanks to either Jack Warren or Alvin Winger our bus rides to and from games were always safe.

    DOVER- Southmont’s wrestlers traveled to Western Boone to compete in the Super 8 Invitational and came out with a record of 4-1 only falling to Greenfield Central.
    “We ended the day where we thought we would at 4-1,” said Coach Wilkinson. “We saw a lot of good things from our guys, but we also see some things we need to fix and improve upon.”
    An overall good showing from the Mounties had 4 team members going undefeated. Boone Welliever (145), Peyton Long (152), Austin Williams (182), and Mason Cody (220) all went 5-0 for the invitational.

    NEW MARKET – The Southmont Lady Mounties overcame a nettlesome Seeger press, and placed three players in double figures, outpacing the Patriots 56-39 in non-conference action, Saturday.
    The win pushed Southmont's (6-5, SAC 0-1) record into the plus column for the first time since jumping to a 2-1 season start, and ended Seeger’s (3-5, WRC 1-2) win streak at two.
    Kasey Burton paced Southmont with 18 points on 60 percent shooting from the floor. Front lin-ers Lilly Ward and Marlowe McVay canned 10 points and 12 points, respectively. Each of the top scorers shot better than 50 percent.

  • Chargers survive Hot Dogs best effort
    Sunday, December 04, 2016 9:05 PM
    LINDEN – Coming off Thursday’s win over Covington, the North Montgomery Lady Chargers were looking for big things as winless Frankfort came to town Saturday afternoon. However, it was the Lady Hot Dogs who played their best game of the season giving North everything they could want and more before the Lady Chargers pulled away for the 50-43 win.
    Frankfort found success with their full court press and dropping back into a 2-3 zone which stymied the Charger offense forcing them into 31 turnovers.
    “We knew they’d come out and press us, but we were out of it today,” said head coach Ryan Nuppnau. “We didn’t go through our progressions, we dribbled too much, and didn’t pass well, and they took advantage.”

  •  Randolph, Merica spark Chargers comeback
    Sunday, December 04, 2016 9:05 PM
    LINDEN – Caleb Randolph carried the scoring burden of his North Montgomery Chargers with 29 points, Saturday night, but it was the 22 ounces he lifted from Fountain Central’s Nathaniel Butts with 0:42 seconds remaining that led to the Chargers’ 68-61 comeback victory.
    Randolph challenged the Mustang guard at mid-court, retrieved the pilfered basketball, drove the lane, then kicked out to a waiting Mitch Merica, who drained a 23-foot jumper, giving the Chargers the lead they would keep to the finish.

  •   Mounties stay perfect, spoil Neese’s 53
    Sunday, December 04, 2016 9:00 PM
    NEW MARKET – Fifty-three points from Butler-commit Connor Neese was ugly in the scorebook for Mountie faithful, but the Southmont boys’ basketball team played a complete game and beat Neese’s Clovers handily, 83-69. 
    Trailing by a point after the first quarter, Southmont showed off some of the half-court defense that helped them beat North a night before. In the second quarter, Southmont limited Cloverdale to six points, and only one field goal. Neese was 0-for-4 in the quarter and scored just two points. 
    “That is the best weekend of basketball that Southmont has played in a very, very, very long time,” Southmont head coach Jon Sparks praised. “And although we gave up 69 points and there was a dude that went for 53, we played good defense and I’m really proud of that.”

  •  All Mounties in county clash
    Friday, December 02, 2016 11:22 PM
    NEW MARKET – In the first marquee matchup of the season in Montgomery County, it was all Southmont in a 76-42 victory over North Montgomery. A staunch defensive effort and smooth shooting proved to be the perfect combination for the Mounties Friday at home. 
    From the tip, both teams wanted to run, but it was Southmont that was able to find the bottom of the net. After a couple back-and-forth possessions, the Mounties started connecting and opened to a 9-0 advantage. The game quickly slowed as the hosts settled into and executed a half-court man defense that ought to be put on film for the next youth camp.

  • Lady Athenians  live out  lopsided loss
    Friday, December 02, 2016 11:22 PM
    Short-handed, shortsighted against the press, and just plain short on the floor, the Crawfordsville Lady Athenians buckled under Lebanon’s swarming pressure, hobbling to a 75-30 Sagamore Athletic Conference loss.
    Friday night’s loss was Crawfordsville’s (3-7, SAC 0-3) sixth straight defeat, and extended Lebanon’s (6-3, SAC 1-0) winning streak to three, gaining the Tigers their first conference win.
    “Give Lebanon credit,” said Tony Bean. “They are fundamental, and they are athletic, and they are big, and they put the pressure on us.”
    It was everything that Crawfordsville wasn’t.

  • Heroes aplenty for Athenians
    Friday, December 02, 2016 11:22 PM
    Crawfordsville didn’t have any lack of heroes in their game Friday night against Lebanon. Whether it was Devin Guard’s 11 first quarter points that gave Crawfordsville a 5-point advantage, or Jack Sommer, whose back-to-back baskets to start the fourth cut a 5-point Tiger lead to one.
    Don’t forget about James Gineris deep three, or his runner down the lane over 6’5” Trevor Lakes to give the Athenians the lead for good with 0:18 remaining, or Cameron Harris who scored all 13 of his points in the second half to help the Athenians do something they haven’t done in 20 years - defeat Lebanon on their home court, winning a thriller 50-48.

    MARSHALL – Southmont came out fast and never looked back as they evened their ledger with a 69-23 win over an overmatched Turkey Run squad in Thursday girls’ basketball action. 
    The Mounties pressured the ball early and often, resulting in 22 first-half Turkey Run turnovers that directly led to 25 Southmont points. At the center of the action was senior Kasey Burton. Twelve of her game-high 20 points came before intermission and the game was all but decided at halftime as the Mounties held a 41-9 edge.
